Leveraging Technology for ARRA Reporting:
A Best Practices and Knowledge Sharing Forum #3
Thursday, April 22, 2010, 9:00am – 11:00am

On April 22, CTG will host the third and final forum designed to support the sharing of current and best practices in the use of technology resources to capture, manage, and deliver the data required for ARRA reporting. This forum will be held at CTG’s facility at 187 Wolf Road, Suite 301, from 9 am to 11 am.

This last forum will begin with a keynote presentation by Theresa Pardo on the new demands for transparency required by the Obama administration. She will discuss the key challenges public managers face trying to make real-time, comprehensive, information about government activities more available. The federal requirements for reporting Recovery Act funds relied heavily on state governments’ ability to capture, manage, and provide access to data. What does this actually mean for transparency from a data perspective?

Her presentation will be followed by a panel discussion from members of different state agencies, with different roles in the ARRA reporting process. They will share their insights in how these new demands for transparency impact current practices, specifically focusing on the effect of ARRA reporting on agencies. How do you define transparency from where you sit? How has ARRA changed the way agencies think about data and information?

The morning will conclude with a group discussion of the lessons learned over the last year through the forums.
